"This will be the best investment you make. The MotherWorthy retreat healed a part of my soul that I didn't believe could be put back together. I felt a deep soul cleanse from being with a group of women I'd grown to love. This retreat solidified that sisterhood."

This retreat combines community, connection, and lots of down time sprinkled with heart-led offerings + practices.

When we really slow down into deep time, we can finally hear whispers from within that go unnoticed when we're moving fast and highly scheduled.

Bend of Ivy itself is magical, nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, and offers amazing views of the surrounding area.

 The tallest peak east of the Mississippi, Mount Mitchell, can easily be seen from the property. In addition to mountain views, there are also charming spots to sit and relax such as near the river bank, pond, fire pit, and more. 

Bend of Ivy also has a number of meandering trails that are well maintained and great for walking and taking in nature.

Vaccination is required to attend. I hope you will understand my tricky positioning on this, as I respect both sides of this very personal decision.

My goal is to have this retreat feel as normal as possible, without the need for masks and social distancing, and the only way I can provide that is to require that attendees have been vaccinated.


Camp MW21 (1)


After two years of constant caretaking and worry of the unknown, come connect with yourself and other likeminded mamas at this nurturing and awakening retreat.


Have we mentioned that you will be cooked for the entire time?!


Our chef, Dava Melton, cooks “Good Natured Foods,” which refers to the natural bounty that resonates from the Earth, preparing food with caring hands, and infusing meals with comfort and delicious consistency.

Dava also specializes in gluten free cooking and baking, and provides animal protein, vegetarian, vegan and gluten free delights at each meal. Yes, she's a miracle worker.





  • Revolution From Home

    “Beth’s MotherWorthy retreat completely exceeded my expectations. The best word I can come up with to describe it is 'MAGICAL.' We rested, we bonded, we hiked, we swam, we laughed, we ate delicious food, we sang, we cried, we danced around a fire, we dug deep, and we became stronger, more connected women.”

  • Revolution From Home

    “At the retreat, we quickly built a strong, felt sense of community. Looking back I find it amazing that I never felt judged by any of the women there, not for one moment. It was just a special, safe space for the entire weekend. Being with that group of women I constantly felt encouraged and lifted up into being the most honest and heartfelt version of myself. I was inspired and nourished. I felt brave enough to do things that I never have done, and I was celebrated and normalized when sharing things that I rarely share with others. I came away feeling really nourished spiritually and emotionally, with a little fire burning in my heart.”

  • Revolution From Home

    “I have never felt more held and supported then I have being in circle with Beth. Through our retreat, I had the opportunity to push deeper into things I was feeling for myself and make lasting connections with sisters who 'get it.'”

  • Revolution From Home

    “Beth is a skilled facilitator with a ton of great resources that she weaves into the discussion easily. This retreat was exactly what I needed as a parent of a toddler, with all the busyness of my parent life. The space was perfect for individual relaxation and group discussion, and with all the preparation that Beth had done, I felt like the weekend went by without any extra effort needed on my part. The mix of activities was excellent as well. Integration of the incredibly beautiful setting into our reflections helped me stay grounded and inspired.”

  • Revolution From Home

    “The retreat with Beth and this amazing group of women was life-changing. It was the perfect setting and an ideal balance of emotional connection, exploring nature, diving deep and having fun. I wish we could recreate it every few months!”

  • Revolution From Home

    “The MotherWorthy retreat was an amazing way to connect in person. I felt safe, loved and free to do things and go places (physically, emotionally, spiritually) that I may not get the opportunity in my daily life. I cherish the friendships I have made through this group, I am so thankful for this opportunity. I would definitely do this again!”

  • Revolution From Home

    “The retreat with Beth was an experience I will always hold dear to my heart. After a year of MotherWorthy, it was an inspiring time spent with women to further enrich our connection and deepen our bond. Beth planned the retreat perfectly, giving us time to connection with one another and with ourselves. We all (reluctantly) left the retreat with a sense of ease and our souls filled to the brim.”

  • Revolution From Home

    “The retreat filled me with a great sense of confirmation that I am on the right path, that the work I’m doing is important, and I am part of a rising collective of changemakers.”

  • Revolution From Home

    “I didn’t realize how starved I was for connection with other brilliant, warm, funny, and openly raw women. It reminded me of the pure joy and delight of my Girl Scout Troop days as a kid. It was every bit as playful and full of sisterhood, down to the beautiful song circles. Beth is creating magic in these retreats - pure magic.”

  • Revolution From Home

    “Valuing myself was my biggest hurdle to attending, but spending the time and the money on myself was so worth it. You will be more able to show up for yourself and everyone around you after taking this time and space. I have gained more understanding about myself, connection with other mamas, and an expansiveness I couldn’t have gotten from stealing bits of time away for myself.”

  • Revolution From Home

    “I was concerned about being away from my kids, especially since I had never been away that long, but I was surrounded by other mothers - many farther ahead of me on that path - and felt so safe and encouraged that I had so much more fun!”

  • Revolution From Home

    “Beth is a wise, grounded, playful magic maker! The community of women she is growing and nurturing is powerful and changemaking. I love her commitment to revolution, and will mother myself and my children differently because of all I have learned.”



Naturally, no one books with the intention of cancelling or postponing their retreat, but unexpected things do happen, so I strongly encourage you to purchase travel insurance if you have concerns. I cannot offer any refund at all unless the retreat sells out, and there is someone to take your spot financially. I wish I could compensate people for unforeseen circumstances, but I have incurred expenses that cannot be refunded.

Thank you for your understanding!
